Um...how is January almost over?? It's the 23rd and I feel like New Years was months ago. In any case, I shall begin the segway from healthy January into indulgent February. Before we jump right into a delectable Valentine's Day menu, let's make a pit stop at game day with some (vaguely) healthier sweet and spicy baked popcorn chicken!
If you've been around the blog for a while, you might remember similar recipe from a few years back: sweet and spicy baked orange chicken wings...
Yup. These are basically the same thing in popcorn chicken form. They take a little more prep work but they're so much easier to eat that it's absolutely worth it.
Oh and by extra prep work I mean you just have to dredge the chicken. Basically, cut some chicken breasts into bite sized cubes, toss them in buttermilk, and then roll them around in a bowl full of crispy crunchy panko yums. Then bake until done, and toss in the same glaze.
Tada! Sweet and spicy baked popcorn chicken.
Super crispy on the outside, tender and moist on the inside, and coated in the most delicious asian fusion orange glaze.
I'm officially obsessed. I'm also definitely one those people who only watches the Super Bowl for the snacks...😎
